This isn’t a boring Dallas film school classroom. This isn’t an overcrowded college laboratory. This is life. Real Life. YOUR LIFE.

Do you have an idea for a movie that’s just burning to be realized? Have you always wanted to work in film but find conventional film school too time-consuming or expensive? Whether you want to learn film directing, screenwriting, cinematography, or production, Film Connection offers a new way to learn these skills.

Many professions require a certain amount of time in the classroom, but we don’t feel filmmaking is one of them. Film Connection thinks the best way to learn how the industry works is from inside the industry itself. Our programs place you inside a real-world production company, giving you one-on-one access to a professional in the field.

Don’t Spend More on your Film Education if You Don’t Have to

Our Cinematography School Dallas Puts You in the Real World

With us, you could be in the production meetings, on the set, or on location learning what it takes to get a film, TV series, newscast, or commercials made. Sure, you could gain some technical knowledge in a classroom, by watching YouTube videos, or reading online tutorials. But the only way to build relationships in the industry, how to handle different personalities, is to work with those personalities.

Film Connection offers a unique way to gain the knowledge and experience you need without having to run up huge student loans. As the costs of “name” universities reach astronomical heights, we offer a world-class education at a fraction of the cost. We’ll also save you time as our programs last from six to nine months.

After a year in a college or university, you’ll start preparing for the second year of classes, fighting for the teacher’s attention, and hoping you get the classes you want. With Film Connection, you could be earning a paycheck with a production company or in the middle of making your movie. What makes the most sense to you?
